Us in 2011

I cannot believe, I did a layout just for fun! Well, here is this one featuring one photo of my DH and me! It is not so frequent that we are posing for the camera together. It is always me or him (well, mostly me) behind the camera. This one was from a day trip to "Old San Juan". The place is "Plaza del Quinto Centenario".

Even, I like somehow how this layout turned out, I feel it is incomplete.  It definitely needs the messy factor, just that I wasn't sure, if I wanted to get messy or did not want to messing everything up. Next week (shhh!!! after NSD and Mother's Day), if I decide to mist it, I will share it again. 

BTW, do you agree with me?, which mist color do you recommend for misting or splattering?

I am submitting this layout to several challenge blogs. First, I used the sketch 4.28 from Sketchy Thursdays. Second, I used the Inspiration Board #190 from Color Combos Galore. Third, I am submitting this layout to the current challenge at The Paper Variety
I do not used mist, but I used one brown ink pad, liquid pearls and stickles. Yes, this counts for the The Paper Variety challenge! LOL!

For this layout, I used the awesome April 2011 Main kit from 3 Scrappy Boys. I added the LYB die cut paper and sticker (blue wood) from the March 2011 Trio Kit.

What a beautiful layout, Yara! The picture of you and Dh is wonderful! These colors are lovely. If you want to mist, I would use some pretty yellow! :)

I like the plain background. It suits the sunlight in the photos. But then this is from the woman who bought her first bottle of glimmer mist before Christmas and still hasn't used it - LOL!

Lea said...

I think this layout is fabulous just as is! Love the colors pp and the little cluster in the corner. But mist is something that I ususally don't regret, if you decide to add some, I'd go with something golden!

Theresa said...

I hear you about finishing a layout and thinking it needs something. I think it looks great, but if you want to add mist and it will make you happy, I'd go for it. I agree with lea, a golden color and maybe even that green.

Beautiful, well-balanced layout. I love the colors you chose!

Yara, this layout is beautiful as is. however, if you decide to mist it, i am going to say to pick out the blue and just give it a little misting.

Shannon said...

Yara it turned out super cute!!! But hey, get a little messy and splatter some paint! LOL!

As I first saw this layout, I was admiring its clean lines. It looks super as it is!!! I, especially, love the corner treatment, it's awesome. And then I read your post and looked back. Mist would be cool too....either way, it (is/or will) be a fabulous layout.

Thanks for thinking of me. It's nice to be missed.
